Another late post and this time without a good excuse. Next photo of the week this Sunday for sure. That being said please enjoy this beautiful Bare-throated Tiger-Heron from Sara’s and my honeymoon trip to Costa Rica. We saw this male displaying on a buttress root for a female as we rounded a bend in the canal. Our eager suitor was kind enough to pose for photos as our boat approached. I really like how the yellow throat of the heron picks up on the yellow lettering of the signs in the background. This is definitely one of my favourite shots from the trip.
